    NOjust no Seriously, there was so much wrong with this You can t just throw a bunch of history which was the best part in with some characters that barely make sense and seem hardly tolerable, and wrap up a mystery in two pages...

    In this book, the owner of the Green Vase antiques shop dies in mysterious circumstances and leaves the shop to his niece who moves in with her two cats She is immediately latched onto my Monty Carmichael whose nosiness helps her with the mystery It turns out that the fate of her uncle is intricately linked with the fate of William Leidesdorff, a man who was influential in the early days of San Francisco and the gold rush.It was only when I went to make notes for this review that I realised that I never knew the name of the main character When I visited the author s website it is revealed that the anonymous narrator is a cunning way to indicate that she is introverted and shy and to reflect the ongoing struggle to find out who Uncle Oscar was In reality, the book held my attention so poorly that I didn t really notice that the main character didn t have a name Sorry, all of that cleverness was lost on me and I think that most readers felt the same way too.I found the San Francisco and gold rush history tedious maybe this is because I am not American and I felt that the author got carried away with the historical side to such an extent that the mystery part of the book was lost It seemed that the author was trying to be a little too clever for her own good and probably as a historical novel, the writing style would have worked well, but as a mystery well, I wasn t so...

    Several times as I was reading this book I stopped and thought what is the mystery in this book I found the book somewhat confusing and even now as I have finished it I don t feel like I really got the story I even went back this morning and reread the end Maybe I m trying to make too much of ...

    Sorry about it, but no to this one No, every noun does not need two adjectives No, I don t appreciate that the cats are better characterized than the characters I find that true enough real life And no, I will not spoil the ending for you bec...

    This is one of my favorite genres, so I was left feeling completely disappointed that I didn t like ANYTHING about this book The characters, the setting, the language, the writing Hell, I m not even sure I liked the cats WHAT Basically most of the language felt like the author had picked up a thesaurus for every second word A good example is using the word callous to describe the wind In a modern mystery novel, described from the POV of a mystery character that never gets a name, it just seemedwrong On the other hand we have He told people he couldn t bare to destroy the lovely, old ...

    Well, this book had a lot of potential for a good mystery but it just didn t quite get there for me I spent most of the book wondering what the real mystery was The main character what was her name are we ever told lacked definition and other characters were not well developed either which caused me to confuse a couple of them The main character I don t know what to call her di...

    I quickly found myself being drawn into this book I love the mix of history and mystery The author takes a different approach to the typical cozy Having read Ms Hale s Mystery in the Islands series, I knew her writing would not disappoint me In looking at other people s reviews, you either love this book or you hate it For me, ...

    I really wanted to like this book It was originally a self publication that was picked up by Berkley, so I was definitely rooting for the author It has a great title and a considerable amount of charm in the premise However, it s very over written, particularly in the first few chapters She reminded me of students I had when I taught freshman English who felt they needed to use obscure adjectives to impress me I wasn t impressed As the book continued, the plot meandered and never seemed to get anywhere When I realized I was probably invested in figuring out what was going on than the main character, I decided to call it quits I was three quarters of the way through There are too many books in the work to waste time on one s that aren t good.Basically, this is a great first draft that needs substantial editing and rewriting The author thanks no one in the book, so either she didn t ask anyone to read it and give feed back or she s downright ...

    Despite some intriguing premises, this mystery seems to miss the mark.The plot flailed There was too much going on, and it did not, in the end, come together in a coherent way that made sense of the previous events.Like most cozy mysteries, this one had a full cast of eccentric characters I wish they had been coherently depicted.And the cats Sigh I read this because of the cats These cats, while at least they do not speak English, are all to anthropomorphic tiny humans in fuzzy coats as much or than they are CATS I mean cats WANTING to model JEWELRY on a RUNWAY REALLY Not only is that unrealistic...
